It's central location makes this hostel perfect for anyone wanting to experience the city.


Overall pretty good hostel, but as everyone says, it feels more like a hotel! Prob not the best place for solo travellers to meet new people, but great for groups! The rooms were good, clean, quiet, and had lockers. Location is amazing, and is deft worth it! (Walking distance chekpoint Charlie!) But something should deft be done about the showers, too few of them and the ones that are there don't have a curtain or have glass walls between them - a bit too intimate for my taste!


Laundry room out of action


This hostel was very centrally located, and the area around it was very nice. The 6 person dorm was nice, and the beds were fine. This hostel was good overall. There was nothing really bad about it, or anything outstanding about it either. It was a great value for the money. I would stay here again.


Asked for some soap in the dispenser but didn't get any. Staff could be a bit more organised.

breakfast not oncluded and dont think it match the price paid for. wifi very weak


The staff is very good. But we have some troubles in our room because the women shower was broken and the water fills into the room and get dipped everything (our luggage for example). We talked with the manager but in the next day happened the same... Take care if the room is near to the showers.


Why are there no locks on the washrooms? Why don't you have curtains or frosted glass for the washroom windows? Some men opened the door to talk to a female friend who was showering with no consideration for the other women using the showers or getting dressed. Locks on the doors would prevent this. Outside of the shower area the space to get dressed has a massive window with no curtain. At night with the lights on in the washroom anyone outside can see in. Privacy should be a priority!


They Overbooked my room, weren't very helpful dealing with it. Not the cheapest place. Not a pleasant stay.


I cancel my stay a few days ago (6 days) but the hostel still gave me a bill for the night.


rude staff, glass all over the bathroom, ugly, unclean

The staff is super friendly! The location is perfect, near the metro and some sightseeing points, the hostel is well organizes with very clean facilities


The lockers had no locks; you had to bring your own padlock. The showers were filthy, the bathrooms stank of urine. The rooms and bedsheets were basic but fresh and clean. There really could have been at least a sink in the shared dorms


It's a quite big Hostel. Checkpoint Charlie, the Brandenburger Gate and the Reichstag are in walking Distance! Clean, Cheap, good Staff and cool guests! I would recommend this Hostel to any young tourist!


"Excelente localização, funcionários atenciosos. Recomendo!!!"

Very decent hostel in a GREAT location. However, we wish they served free breakfast, which has been a big factor for us as we are budget travelers. The rooms were nice and big, although there didn't seem to be AC. The rooms had huge windows, though, that we kept open at night. Hostel staff were friendly and Brandenburg gate and Checkpoint Charlie were in close walking distance.


One of the nice places we stayed. Most attractive feature is location!


It's a nice Hostel, very clean and everything was very good!!! the only problem is the internet wi fi ( very slow) a part of that!!! i do recomend this Hostel for any traveller!!


it is very nice. and it is convenient for us to find the main attracitons.


Great hostel
